Brown is definitely a reach school for me as of now..
my GPA (uw) is 3.8, my SAT is 1420 (2120) and ACT is 30.
but i do have a hope b/c of my focused interest in art and film, and that certainly shows in my EC activities and course selections. my essay also talks about my filmmaking experience and the quirky middle school i came from.
and since i am planning on majoring in Modern Culture and Media (aka film studies) or fine art, i think my app can complete that picture
thing is, since my stats aren't that great, i'm hoping my submission of art portfolio will help. i've met SMFA's and WashU's rep. and had a brief review of my portfolio and they both seemed to like it a lot.
Brown's website said submit it, but history has shown they don't really help.
that confuses me cuz then again, they give me very specific guidelines for portfolio
given all this, do you think a pretty strong art portfolio can really help me get accepted? esp. as a film/art major?
